Casting JonBenet ★★★

I like the idea of having a unique take on the telling of a true story.  An intriguing mystery however the way they decided to “tell the story” definitely watered down the actual mystery of it.  I mean, this is easily on of the most popular unsolved mysteries in America yet you wouldn’t really understand that after watching this documentary.  It’s interesting to hear the gossipy opinions of the average joes, but it makes the actual storyline of the mystery impossible to follow, you couldn’t even decipher what was fact and what was gossip if you didn’t understand the story itself beforehand.  

A documentary detailing the facts of the mystery would have been good.  A documentary looking into what makes people assume guilt, or take gossip as fact would have been good.  This was a weird middle ground.
